Jon Olson has well over 20 years of experience in the energy and commodities market data and software industries. He led the purchase of MarketView Software Inc. and was the company’s CEO for 13 years, re-naming the company GlobalView Software Inc. This name change reflected the company’s expansion into international markets. Jon led GlobalView through its transition to a web-based platform, MarketView, which garnered multiple awards and broad industry recognition for its strong business value. MarketView resulted in GlobalView’s largest revenue gain (up almost 60% in 2005) in its history. Jon also negotiated and oversaw the delivery of ConfirmHub, an ASP system which homogenized all of the transaction confirmations for the 3 largest brokers in the energy market (now owned and operated by the CME).
Jon’s previous experience includes investment banking, venture capital (including structuring investments in both financial IT and upstream oil and gas investments) and securities brokerage at Drexel Burnham Lambert, Bacon Whipple and William Blair & Co. Jon attended the joint J.D. /M.B.A doctoral program at Northwestern University in Chicago. He earned a B.A in Political Economy from Colorado College, Colorado Springs in 1980.
